Nutrition Tips Winter 2015

Children who have meals with their family not only eat better and are healthier; they learn to socialize and do better in school. Family meals give a time and place to keep up with what is going on with everyone, help each other out, and tell family stories. Enjoying family meals help to keep food in its place as only one of life's great pleasures. Pay attention to the food and enjoy it when it is time to eat, forget about it between times. A rushed morning without breakfast can make eating well challenging. Try these quick breakfast ideas: A long afternoon commute can make eating well challenging. Pack a snack for the afternoon before your ride so you aren’t over hungry when you get home. Healthy food choices at home and at school can help students do better in school and be healthier over all. Part of learning about healthy eating is practicing. If your children’s’ school does not teach food preparation, ask your school administration how you can help to support offering classes. Snack foods like chips, candy, and pop fill children up, but don’t supply any of the nutrition they need to grow and learn. These foods should not be offered in school. Help the school community council and school administration in your children’s school to promote healthy foods in the school.

Lean Management System

Saskatchewan has committed to enhancing its quality improvement efforts through the implementation of a Lean Management System. This implementation includes the provision of consistent education to staff, physicians, patients and families. All staff are required to complete a one day training (Kaizen Basics). 

Health care leaders complete an extensive Lean Leader training and managers are trained in applying Lean concepts through the Lean Management Training Track. 

Sun Country Health Region established a Kaizen Promotion Office (KPO) in 2012 to facilitate the implementation of Lean.

Lean maximizes customer value while minimizing waste. Simply, Lean means creating more value for customers (patients, residents and clients).

A report on the KPO's work to implement Lean in Sun Country Health Region is posted below.
